QUESTION 4: During the collision between the carts, is there a force on cart 2? What makes this force? QUESTION 5: Considering Newton’s Third Law, how do you expect the forces on cart 1 and cart 2 to be related? QUESTION 6: Considering your answer to the previous question, how do you expect the impulse on cart 1 and cart 2 to be related? Why? Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part II: Force and Impulse on Each Cart, Calculations Use the data recorded in Tables 1 — 5 to determine: The initial momentum of cart 1. (Record in Table 6) The final momentum of cart 1. (Record in Table 6) The initial momentum of cart 2. (Record in Table 7) The final momentum of cart 2. (Record in Table 7) The impulse of cart 1. (Record in Table 8) The impulse of cart 2. (Record in Table 8) QUESTION 7: Write the impulse on each cart. Include uncertainty. Do your answers agree with your expectations from Question 6? Comment. Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part III: Summary QUESTION 8: List at least three sources of uncertainty in this experiment. Classify them as random or systematic. Justify the classification. QUESTION 9: Write a brief summary of this experiment. Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Wrap it up! Check that you have completed all questions and tables in your Activity Log. You should have THREE graphs. Distance versus Time (LoggerPro) Distance versus Time (LoggerPro) Force versus Time (LoggerPro)...
